KATY PERRY UNDER FIRE AFTER HER 2013 SONG "Dark Horse" IS A COPY OF A 2013 CHRISTIAN RAP SONG, SAYS THE U.S. COURTS.
After being taken to court over the scandal, Katy attempted to provide evidence to the judges proving she had never heard of the song before. The copy-written song, "Flame", had the same beat/melody of Dark Horse.
The funny side of all this: Katy Perry offered to play the song live to the jurors and the court, but what stood in their way? A broken speaker system! Katy Perry told the Jury she could not have copied a track she had never heard before.

"They're trying to own basic building blocks of music, the alphabet of music that should be available to everyone," said Katy's lawyer Christine Lepera
In total the video has been watched over 2.6 BILLION times!
The Jurors ruled in favour of the copywriters and the amount of money is still being decided.
